The Department of Chemistry is over 90-year old department in St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous). It is headed by Dr. Ronald J Mascarenhas and constitutes of active thirty faculty members. The UG Chemical society (UGCS) 2020-2021 is coordinated by three faculty members (Dr. Sunita Rajamani, Dr. Valeen Rashmi, and Dr. Rita Ghosh).
The Student coordinators of UGCS 2020-2021 are Prakruti (President), Lauren (VP – Natural. Sci), Agnideepta (Asst. VP - Natural Sci), Devika (VP – Physical Sci), Ramya (Asst. VP- Physical Sci), Sreestha (Gen Secretary). Event heads: Aathira, Surhiya, Keerthi, and Aishwariya.
UGCS involves students in all activities, giving them opportunities to host, lead, and conduct events, thereby directly helping them be future. In the previous years, UGCS has conducted various events like talk by eminent scientists, quiz, seminars, talk by students, hands-on experiments to detect colours and so on.
One of the best events that UGCS conducts every year is Tackle fest. It is organized by headstreams (NGO) in collaboration with SJC and UGCS, where students from some government schools visit our college. Our students keep some chemistry stalls to make chemistry easy and fun for these school children. Our BSc students become teachers to these school students and teach chemistry and its various colourful reactions by doing experiments that are not hazardous and are easily doable. These experiments are carried out under the guidance of teachers only. The below is a collage of few pics of last year’s events.
UGCS 2020-2021 has launched three initiatives this academic year.
The team of UGCS believes in fun learning, and so we’re bringing to you more events that will be exciting and knowledgeable.
December : A student made an experimental demonstration
January : Chem talkathon & Sci-fi themed online game
February : Two-round event Chem boggle and chem crossword & Chem quiz
Feb/March : Valedictory
Remedial classes will be conducted throughout the semester, and we will conduct a valedictory
programme to award the winners of the events that were conducted all through the year.
